Indonesia Seeking to Become Global Hub of Muslim Fashion: Minister


Indonesia has a target of becoming a global hub of Muslim fashion by 2020, together with the growing Muslim fashion industry, Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Mari Elka Pangestu said.

“Indonesia is seeking to become a global hub of the Muslim fashion industry by 2020,” she said on Friday.

The domestic Muslim fashion industry was growing rapidly as reflected by its immense creativity. Therefore, there was a reason for the country to become a global hub of the fashion industry, she said.

“The domestic Muslim fashion industry is extremely creative and the potential market for its products is also large,” she added.

She expressed hope that every region in the country will be able to tap their potential and be inspired to develop the Muslim fashion industry.

To achieve the target of being a global hub of the Muslim fashion industry, she said her ministry had organized the Muslim fashion festival every year in Jakarta.

“We have organized the Muslim fashion festival in Jakarta every year,” she noted.

In addition, the government also had sponsored three noted Muslim fashion designers, including Dian Pelangi, to participate in overseas exhibitions, she said.

“We brought it (Muslim fashion design) to London. We received an extraordinary response there,” she added.

    If this is done then the program could increase the number of small businesses in the area. Thus will increase the interest of the public for self-employed.
    It’s good the government is also thinking of the community path to working capital so that the number of entrepreneurs will also increase.
